Exercise of The Week: Ruler Reach

04-ruler-reach

This week we are going to focus on working our abs. This exercise is simple enough to do but will give great results. I love this exercise because you don’t need any equipment at all, which is a good thing! So how do we do this lovely exercise? Start by layind down on the floor facing up. Now you are going to bend your knees and keep your feet flat on the floor. Extend your left leg and make sure that it is parallel to your right thigh. You should look like (a).  Tighten your core and raise your back off the floor and at the same time  raise your arms toward your left foot. Make sure the keep you neck in a neutral position. You should now look like B (b). Hold this for at least 3 seconds, and then slowly roll down. That’s one rep. You should do 5 reps on each side.  See that is not too complicated!
